A three-time all-America while at Washington, Kristina Kraszewski was named the assistant women's tennis coach at Rice in September 2006.
Kraszewski was a four-time letter at Washington, earning all-America singles honors in 1998, 2000 and 2001 and qualifying for the NCAA championships in singles all four years, twice in doubles. While at Washington, she was regularly ranked among the national leaders, including spending several weeks at No. 1. She finished her collegiate career as the all-time leader in singles victories for the Huskies, posting a 111-45 record. In addition to her singles play, Kraszewski was also a two-time NCAA qualifier in doubles and ended her career with 73 wins to rank fifth all time at Washington.
Along with her all-America honors, Kraszewski was a four-time all-Pac 10 honoree. As a freshman, she was named the ITA Northwest Region rookie of the year and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA championships. As a senior, she led the Huskies to their first quarterfinal finish in the NCAA team championship. She was also a three-time Pac-10 All-Academic team member during her career and graduated in 2001 with a bachelor's degree in business administration.
Kraszewski also competed on the WTA Tour, playing in the U.S. Open in 2000 and 2001. She ranked as high as 229 in the world in singles, winning three singles tournaments and two in doubles during her career.
After retiring from the pro ranks in 2002, she returned to Seattle, Wash., to teach tennis lessons, then accepted a coaching position at Elite TNT Tennis Academy in Montgomery, Texas in summer 2005.
